Shrimp are one of the best kinds of seafood in Orlando because they are so versatile. We can prepare them in seemingly endless combinations and achieve different results each time. LetLombardi’s Seafood Market show you five ways to prepare shrimp so you’ll never be out of ideas again!


Many culinary experts posit that roasting shrimp is the best way to go about cooking it. They argue that the oven allows them to darken and caramelize while intensifying their flavor and sweetness. We suggest tossing your shrimp in some olive oil and salt and then roasting at 400 degrees in the oven for six to eight minutes.


Breaded shrimp are often found at popular restaurants, but they’re very simple to make at home as well. Peel and devein first, then decide whether or not you’d like to keep the tail. Next, cover them completely in a mixture of flour, egg, and breadcrumbs and fry them in oil until they are golden brown which should only take one to two minutes.

Peruvian Style: Ceviche!

Ceviche is a Peruvian method of cooking in which the best seafood in Orlando is chopped up and marinated in a fresh, citrus mixture. Purchase some fresh shrimp and your dish will come together in no time whatsoever.

Grill Them

Grilling your shrimp is one of the most popular ways to prepare it, and it’s fast too. A great dish for beginners, this will be complete in a matter of minutes! Grab about one and a half pounds of shrimp, some olive oil, lemon juice, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Toss it all around and then pop your shrimp onto the grill. So simple, yet so good.

Garlic Sauce

For only about 25 minutes of cooking, you can have a pretty special interpretation of traditional garlic and shrimp. Simply grab your garlic and sauté it in a skillet with some avocado oil. Once you can smell its flavorful scent, add broccoli, snap peas, bay leaf, any sauces, and of course your shrimp. Enjoy!
